Rethinking Passion Pit

I really liked Passion Pit's debut, Manners. But, if it's possible, I think I actually underestimated the album. Part of the problem is that "The Reeling" is such an incredible track. It just overshadowed everything else on the album, for me. Now having some distance, I'm really starting to appreciate the whole of Manners. It's probably my second favorite album of 2009. (It's Blitz! is the obvious number one.)
